“You are not wise, you fish in
drinking water! "

A Japanese business traveler visiting Sweden was so surprised that
he only gaped as the fishing guide on the boat bent down and drank
a scoop of Vättern's pure water. A small catchment area i
relation to the lake's large surface and water depth (128 meters as
deepest) makes Vättern a nutrient-poor lake with great visibility
and cold, clean and oxygen-rich water. Therefore, many of the Vätterns
characteristic fish species - i.a. trout, grayling and trout species
which usually occurs further north. Sick, sickle and grouse
are also those in need of great depth and good oxygen content and are typical

Vätterrödingen - Sweden's most valuable
fish stocks!

No species is as closely associated with Vättern as the great trout, one
of the world's most beautiful fish species. To witness the char game on shallow
Water in late autumn is an experience beyond the ordinary. Visit
for example, Huskvarna harbor at the end of October. Char males
in their brightly colored play suits patrolling the playgrounds
and often pass by near land. Besides being one
pleasing to the eye it tastes amazing and having one on the hook is
many fishermen's dream. Since 2004, there are three areas in Vättern
where fishing (such as cancer fishing) is completely prohibited. The ban
comprises about 15% of Vättern's total area and was added
as a result of increasingly poor fishing for char and whitefish. The fishing ban has in
combination with other measures contributed to the stock of char

The world's largest trout?
Originally, there were two strains of trout in Vättern - an upstream play
and a downstream play. At the beginning of the 20th century
a hydroelectric power plant was built in Motala stream which resulted in
the downstream migratory trout, formerly called Vätterlax,
could no longer reach their former playgrounds at the outlet of Vättern. One
of the world's largest adult trout strains were thus lost.
Salmon has been planted in Vättern since the 1970s to compensate for fishing
after the big trout.

Trout and action
During the autumn, the trout will be looking up into the streams
to play, but in most streams the walking is hindered by different
types of pond buildings. Therefore, in recent years has
intensive action has been taken to improve the trout's situation.
In many rivers, obstacles have been fixed and fishing routes have been built.
Trout has now become an increasingly common catch in Vättern, both for
professional anglers and anglers.
